Goddess Interrupted

Goddess Interrupted - Aimee Carter I really liked The Goddess Test, so I expected to like Goddess Interrupted just as much (or hopefully close to as much, since beating a series debut can be quite difficult). But Goddess Interrupted is not quite what it could have been. So let’s just hope the next one is better.In Goddess Test, I found Kate to be a strong female lead, however in Goddess Interrupted, she seems to have lost some of that spine I enjoyed so much. There is also not a lot of the playful banter that is found in the first book and I missed that element a lot. Books have me at LOL, but this one didn’t have a lot of LOL moments. I was a little bit sadface about that. Henry continues to be a very dry, two-dimensional character, but I see where the author is going with that, so free pass, I suppose. I just wish there was more emotion from him. I am not a fan of emotionless characters.When Kate, James and Ava go into the Underworld to save Henry, I swear to God only a few days passed, but it’s referenced that a few months went by. Did I miss something? Did I accidentally skim? I wasn’t about to flip back through my ebook to find out, I just took it for what it was and assumed I had to have missed something. But honestly, the limited amount of action that happens doesn’t feel like months pass. So maybe that’s where I was confused. I really dug Calliope’s character. Aimee Carter wrote her very well and she was probably the most interesting god to read about. I would actually love to know more about her past! There is a method to her madness and she is very careful and conniving, just as I would picture an ages-old goddess to be. The rest of the characters, besides James and Ava, are very much in the background and see limited page time. This story is about...well, I’m not sure. I guess it’s about Kate and Henry. Or is it about Kate growing into her role as Queen of the Underworld? Except that isn’t right because...oops, spoiler. Can’t say more. It’s hard to say exactly what this book is about actually. I feel a bit like this is just a transitional novel, and I’m okay with that if that’s indeed the case.The world-building is really well-done in Goddess Interrupted. The Underworld shifts perspectives based on whose “territory” you’ve come into. Some people are experiencing their own version of Hell, complete with whips and chains, while others have a beautiful paradise. I loved that aspect, it was incredible. Overall, this is a good read and I have a feeling, like I said, it is a transitional novel between 1 and 3. I definitely recommend anyone who has read Goddess Test should read Goddess Interrupted, because you’ll enjoy the continuing storyline and - whoa the ending!
